The Rural Nurse Organization (RNO) was founded in 1989 by and for rural nurses for the purpose of recognizing, promoting and maintaining the unique specialty of rural nursing practice. Rural nurses are a special group of professionals working in an especially demanding environment.

RNO is the only professional organization of health care providers dedicated to the specialized practice and unique challenges of rural nursing. RNO membership includes registered nurses, licensed practical/vocational nurses, and nursing assistants.

The RNO envisions:

  • Recognition of the diversity of rural nursing practice.
  • A voice for rural nurses to health care agencies, academia and government.
  • Continuing education and access to resources for rural nurses.
  • Quality health care for rural communities.

While our active membership is small, it includes many rural nursing leaders across the country. Membership is open to non-nursing professionals who are interested in rural healthcare. The organization provides a forum for nurses and other health professionals to come together to discuss issues relevant to health care delivery through its web site, the Online Journal of Rural Nursing and Health Care, and the newsletter, which is in an electronic format.

Advertising through RNO can be done on the RNO website or in the electronic newsletter. Please see options and pricing below and if interested, you con complete your purchase here on the RNO website. Please contact RNO at to submit your advertising materials or with any questions.
